Currently running macOS 11.2.3, and noticed that the system VNC server (enabled in
System Preference ->
Screen Sharing) always includes the mouse pointer in the video feed sent to the client, causing a shadowed mouse pointer on the client side (As VNC viewers would also render the mouse pointer locally to make a smooth motion). And the behavior is the same no matter if I use the
Screen Sharing as the client on another Mac, or some third party VNC viewers on PC. While the Vine VNC Server does not have this issue and works perfectly.
So I wonder if there is a way to stop the system default VNC server from rendering the cursor of the remote machine. I have heard the rumors that the $80 Apple Remote Desktop can somehow configure this, but I haven't yet made the investment. Can someone confirm?
